Judy Greer on “Arrested Development”: People are talking about bringing Kitty Sanchez back

Judy Greer on Arrested Development

Posted by on

The new season of “Arrested Development” is happening. There’s visual proof it’s being written, which at least to us makes the announcement it’s happening seem all the more official. And with the entire fourth season to be released at once on Netflix, that’s all the more reason to be excited for 2013.

When we heard that Judy Greer was going to be at the DVD release party for “Jeff, Who Lives At Home,” we knew we wouldn’t let her get out of the Basement Tavern in Santa Monica without asking at least one question about “Arrested Development” and the potential return of Kitty Sanchez. When we last spoke to her, Greer said that no one had talked to her about coming back to the show yet. Unfortunately that hasn’t changed in the two and a half months since, but Greer did say that “people are talking to people” about her reprising her role.

“Not this people, but some people,” she joked. “People have talked to other people about me, and that’s real. No one has talked to me, but like, yeah, people are like, ‘Oh don’t worry.’ Someone was like, ‘Oh, I talked to so and so and they were like, don’t worry, she’s going to be in it,’ but I always say that unless I’m in the movie theater at the premiere watching my face on a fuck-off screen…”

But would Greer want to come back if creator Mitch Hurwitz would have her? That, to her, was a no brainer.

“Oh, yeah,” she said, adding that it would be no different than when she would film on “Arrested Development” before. “They’d be like, ‘Can you come in to work tonight?’ I’d be like, ‘Yes, where are you shooting?’ ‘In Piru, can you be here in an hour?’ ‘Yeah, I’m at dinner. Like, I’m drinking.’ ‘It’s fine, it’s fine, we just realized we have to have you in this scene.’ They were just kind of awesome.”

When we heard that Scott Baio was going to be reprising his role as Bob Loblaw in the fourth season of “Arrested Development,” we immediately rushed to pull together a list of 10 other characters we’d love to see head back to the small (computer) screen in the upcoming episodes. Kitty was of course at the top of the list, but we wanted to find out who Greer, as a fan, felt should return.

“Annyong. I mean, is he even secondary?” she was quick to answer. “You know how that Michael’s girlfriend [Marta Estrella] who was a Latina actress, but then it was one actress and then another actress replaced her? I feel they should have both actresses back. I feel that needs to happen.”

This awesome idea just confirms our belief that Greer should take over writing for the show. After all, when we last talked to her she admitted that she wanted Kitty to come back with all the Bluth secrets that she had been hoarding over the years and “take down the Bluths.” This time, she had an even more hilarious scheme set up for the former Bluth Company secretary.

“I also think I should be pregnant with one of their babies. Mystery baby,” she said. “I feel like Kitty should have all the secrets that takes them down, but we’ll see what they decide.”

Two New Ways to Threeway

IFC's Comedy Crib gets sensual in time for Valentine's Day.

Posted by on

This week, two scandalous new digital series debut on IFC’s Comedy Crib.
Ménage à Trois invites people to participate in a real-life couple’s fantasy boudoir. And The Filling is Mutual follows two saucy chefs who invite comedians to make food inspired by their routines. Each show crosses some major boundaries in sexy and/or delicious ways, and each are impossible to describe in detail without arousing some awkward physical cravings. Which is why it’s best to hear it directly from the minds behind the madness…

Ménage à Trois

According to Diana Kolsky and Murf Meyer, the two extremely versatile constants in the ever-shifting à trois, “MàT is a sensually psychedelic late night variety show exploring matters of hearts, parts and every goddamn thing in between…PS, any nudes will be 100% tasteful.”

This sexy brainchild includes sketches, music, and props that would put Pee-wee’s Playhouse to shame. But how could this fantastical new twist on the vanilla-sex variety show format have come to be?

“We met in a UCB improv class taught by Chris Gethard. It was clear that we both humped to the beat of our own drum; our souls and tongues intermingled at the bar after class, so we dove in head first.”

Sign me up, but promise to go slow. This tricycle is going to need training wheels.

The Filling is Mutual

Comedians Jen Saunderson and Jenny Zigrino became best friends after meeting in the restroom at the Gotham Comedy Club, which explains their super-comfortable dynamic when cooking with their favorite comedians. “We talk about comedy, sex, menses, the obnoxiousness of Christina Aguilera all while eating food that most would push off their New Year’s resolution.”

The hook of cooking food based off of comedy routines is so perfect and so personal. It made us wonder about what dishes Jen & Jenny would pair with some big name comedy staples, like…

Bill Murray?
“Oh, that’s easy Meatballs with Lingonberry Space Jam it’d be great, but then we’d have to Oh, that’s easy Meatballs with Lingonberry Space Jam it’d be great, but then we’d have to… Oh, that’s easy Meatballs with Lingonberry Space Jam it’d be great, but then we’d have to avoid doing any kind of silly Groundhog Day reference.” 

Bridget Everett?
“Cream Balls… Sea Salt encrusted Chocolate Ganache Covered Ice Cream Ball that melt cream when you bite into them.” 

Nick Kroll & John Mulaney? 
“I’d make George and Gil black and white cookies from scratch and just as we open the oven to put the cookie in we’d prank ’em with an obnoxious amount of tuna!!!”

Carrie Brownstein & Fred Armisen? 
“Definitely a raw cacao “safe word” brownie. Cacao!”

Just perfect.

Dark Arts

Foot Fetish Jesus And Other Nightmares

Meet the minds behind Comedy Crib's latest series, Quirks and The Mirror.

Posted by on

The Mirror and Quirks are really, really strange. Deeply disturbing yet hauntingly beautiful. But you really don’t need to read a synopsis of either of the aforementioned shows to understand the exact variety of nightmare-bonkers comedy these shows deliver — that’s why the good lord made links. Instead, take a peek behind the curtain and meet the creators.

Quirks

Let’s start with Kevin Tosi. Kevin does the whole show by himself. That doesn’t mean he’s a loner — Kevin has a day job with actual humans. But that day job is copywriting. So it’s only natural that his suppressed demons would manifest themselves in biting cartoon form, including “Foot Fetish Jesus”, in ways that somehow speak to all of us. If only all copywriters channeled their inner f*ckedupness into such…expressive art.

The Mirror

Onward to the folks at Wham City Comedy.

These guys aren’t your typical comedy collective in that their work is way more left-field and even elevated than your standard digital short. More funny weird than funny ha-ha. They’ve done collaborations with musicians like Beach House, Dan Deacon & Wye Oak, television networks (obviously), and others. Yeah they get paid, but their motivation feels deeper. Darker. Most of them are video artists, and that explains a lot.

See more of The Mirror and Quirks on IFC.com and the IFC app.
